This card is for my long time friend Mary. (27 years) We worked together for years and have remained friends. My dear friend is challenged with bone cancer and she is one of the most resilient and brave people I know! I wanted her card to be very special!
Little white flowers punched out of the Martha Stewart Flower Box edge punch, I thencut petals into each little flower and pasted onto Butterfly(stayed up until 3 doing that little task because I wanted them to dry before puting into the envelope)
Also made butterfly trail from same flowers but put a tiny pearl into each
I have been very unhappy with the quality of my photo’s. So with the help of Julie (justwritedesigns), who directed me to an ebay site, I am getting a light box to take my pictures in. This card is a good example of bad photography…it has a yellow shadow through it that was in every picture but not on my card. Plus I could not get the right lighting. SO hopefully after this card and the other one I am posting at the same time, all my cards will be photographed in my new lightbox! YEAH!!!!
Memory Box Darla Butterfly cut twice and embossed once with Cuttlebug Swiss dot folder
Marianne label and frame
Marianne Anja Rose corner
Martha Stewart Flower Box edge punch
Rubbernecker Happy Birthday
Half pearls on butterfly body and to accent sentiment
Linen and regular white card stock
Spritzed all over with SU Champagne Mist mixed with alcohol
Thank you for taking the time to look!

Ya know Peggy, I can not imagine your card being anymore beautiful than the one on the screen! If you've been having photo problems it is not at all evident and you make the softest and most phenomenal cards out there. Not to mention you are a fantastic friend. I'm sending prayers for your friend also.

Peggy, the only thing more beautiful than this card is the heart that can be felt in your work. Mary will feel so blessed to hold this in her hands, knowing the love you have poured into it. That lil bloomin' flower trail just knocked me over girl! You are sooooo amazing!!!! Love-love-love it all!
